The firm also stands out for its May 2022 signing of a strategic alliance with Gómez-Pinzón Abogados (GPA), which allows it to lean into the latter’s top-tier corporate practice and significantly expand its service offering. High-profile managing partner Fabio Humar has an impressive 20-year track record in representing individuals and companies in corporate compliance and white-collar crime cases. External lawyer Gloria Liliana Pérez, who was previously with the Attorney General’s Office, is also noted at senior level.
